3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Neat, dark amber with a fine, beige head. High carbonation - way too high - the beer tries to escape the bottle as soon as the cap is removed. Lovely nose full of nuts and aroma hops. Light nutty notes in the flavour also, together with some roasted malt. But the body is thin and watery and completely lacks potency. Most likely an excellent session bear - if you can cope with the carbonation. 150805

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. This is an interesting beer. Mid range ABV, but huge flavour. Dark amber almost brown out of the bottle, which doesn’t seem to gel with the style. About a finger of white slightly creamy head which left behind a little lacing. Flowery hops are quite obvious in the aroma on top of a malty base with hints of orange peel. As indicated above, no shortage of flavour for a mid strength beer, a very nice balance between the sweetness of the malts and slight bitter finish of the hops, also with a pleasant toastiness in the finish and aftertaste to add to the balance. A little watery on the palate. Would make an excellent session beer, you could easily drink this stuff all day. Overall a pleasant surprise and worthy little brother to the famous Pale Ale.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
An amber beer with a small beige head. The aroma is lovely hoppy combined with notes of caramel - it reminds me of an IPA. The flavor is dry and boring compared to the aroma - it contains notes of brewmash, hints of caramel, and a dry hoppyness. It lacks power in the flavor.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber colored, small tan head. Malty aroma with toffee and hop present. Sweet and quite full. Mostly sweet malty and caramelly flavor with notes of orange. Pretty ordinary, but easy drinkable and a good taste.

Terrific midstrength brew! Brown toffee coloured, clear, with a medium head. Fruity, hoppy, toffee aromas. Balanced palate with good flavour and a solid finish make this my second favourite midstrength beer, after Grand Ridge’s Moonlight.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber coloured beer with an averaged lifed beige head. It has a strong characteristic cascade hop aroma and nice sweet malt notes, including toffee. It has a dominating hop flavour and also nice malt flavour with slight fruitiness. Medium-strong bitterness with some residual sweetness resulting in a well balanced beer. It has a fairly long bitter finish. Although it is not one of my favourite styles, it is extremely well crafted. Better enjoyed on tap down at the brewery!
